Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, is having trouble with the ice dispenser, control panel, and both interior lights went out. I also see that the numbers 56 56 are displayed on your panel. If the numbers are showing Sb, this tells me it is in the Sabbath mode. To get out of this mode you will need to press and hold the down arrow on the freezer side and the up arrow on the refrigerator side simultaneously for 5-10 seconds. If this does not work, I suggest resetting your appliance. You can do this by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and check the control panel as well as the ice dispenser and lights. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

SOURCE: Water and ice dispenser and panel light stopped working.

Oakescreek, start with simple things first. Check the freezer door light interlock switch. This has to be closed to send power to the dispenser. If that is working ok, check the harness coming from the bottom of the freezer door for cracked or split wires. Check the harness plug itself to make sure it is completely connected. If these things check out ok, we will need to verify that we are getting voltage to the dispenser selection switch. If we are and it is still not operating..then I would suspect that to be the problem. I'll keep and eye peeled for a reply. Catriver.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

SOURCE: ice/water dispenser control panel

@ Scootertramp

You tell us about this board or that board but never tell us where to located or get at these boards. Would you please clarify that?

My ice and water started dispensing sporadically, though the lights were working fine. After I removed the kick board at the bottom, cleaned out the little connector and put it back together, nothing on the door works. All else works fine.

SOURCE: control panel on my fridge

Pull the power cord for 5 minute to reset the control board. if this control panel malfunction still exist after the reset, replace the control circuit board.

This is a typical control fault that should be corrected by pulling power for 5 minutes. if not, this reset will confirm major damaged to the circuit board.

How to change the light bulb in the outside ice/water dispenser



Question about Maytag 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with PuriClean II Ice and Water
1 Answer
The light on the outside door (where the ice/water dispenser is) won't turn off. It is dimmer than when you hit the 'light' button, but it stays on constantly when the door is shut. The 'light' button works and turns the bulb brighter, but when you turn it off, it just dims and doesn't go out. The light shuts off when the door is open and turns back on when its closed.

Re: The light on the outside door (where the ice/water...

Hi
Reprogramming your refrigerator to only light up when the dispenser is in use saves energy and keepsyour house darker at night. The light is controlled using the buttons above the water dispenser mechanism.Press and hold the "Lock" or "Lock Controls" button for three seconds to activate the controls if they currently are locked.Tap the "Light" button to switch off the light.Press and hold the "Lock" button for another three seconds to lock the controls from further changes. The light now only comes on when the dispenser is active.
If the above procedure won't work then this will be the cause of a faulty switch. This light switch is an integrated part of the dispenser control circuit board. This will require you, or your service tech to replace the entire dispenser/ice maker control board. It will be located just behind the dispenser fascia, mounted on a bracket. the actual light switch circuit is mounted on this board.
Try this procedure:-
Shutdown the unit for five minutes. Simply unplug the unit for this length of time. This will reset the board, and possibly, fix this fault if it is not to severe. If the shutdown dose not correct the switch action, simply replace the dispenser/switch control circuit board.
Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

The control panal on freezer door says 56-56 will not despence water or ice


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are receiving a 56 56 code on the display of your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# GLHS269ZDB. I also see that it is not dispensing ice or water, even though you have reset it by unplugging it. The 56 56 is actually SB SB. This tells me that your refrigerator is in Sabbath mode. To exit the Sabbath mode, press and hold the down arrow and the plus sign, simultaneously for 5-10 seconds or until the display changes. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your refrigerator status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Maytag mfi2568aes control panel


If the refrigerator water dispenser is not working the water supply tube in the door may be frozen. This will be difficult to track down. Look for a connection point at the bottom or top of the door, try removing the hose and blowing air through it and out the dispenser. Next it could be the water valve that sometimes has twin valves for ice and water combined, third is low pressure into the line (bad main valve) or clogged filter... you need about 20psi for function. Last is the door switch, when the freezer door is opened the freezer door switch does two things, it turns on the light in the freezer and turns off the ice and water dispenser. If the door switch fails the dispenser will not turn on. The switch can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter. If it doesn't have continuity it should be replaced.

Without a model number here how they usually operate. The DOOR / LIGHT switch disables water and ice in door functions. I.e. it is not supposed to operate with the door open. If the switch is open... i.e the light is not working door open, (Switch has 2 functions Light and Water / ive in door operation) Then the control panel / water / ice in door will all not work either. It is possible for the light to work while the CP / H2o / Ice do not work. Usually if a door switch fails the light stops working also. It is not always the case.

Try holding to door switch plunger depressed and see if your CP works and water in door work. DO NOT try ice in door as you can damage things.

If you respond with a model number and brand; I will see what I can dig up for you use while troubleshooting your unit. Expect to see parts data also.

I have a GE Profile refrigerator that will not dispense water or ice. The panel and light work and when you try to get ice or water it does nothing. No noise either. It is model # PFSS6PKW


When both ice and water do not work it is usually related to the door / light switch failing. Check the door switch by depressing the plunger and see if the compartment light goes out. If it oes not go out the switch has failed. WITH POWER REMOVED the switch is removed by using a thin knife blade to release the single locking tab on one side of the switch. The switch had 3 terminals
C = Common
NC= Light
NO= water and ice.

You should read continiuty (resistance)
from C to NC plunger extended
from C to NO plunger depressed.

If this switch is good then there is a problem with door hinge wiring or control panel wiring.
My bet the door switch has failed.

There are 12 models of this french door refrigerator.

Maytag MFI2266AEU Water and ice dispenser locked, control panel


Door Panel Locked
Press Door Alarm and Freezer "-" at the same time, then release Door Alarm but continue pressing Freezer "-". You will see PE _ _ _ _.
Press Freezer "-" until PE # # # # shows on the panel.
Using Freezer "+" to move cursor, Refrigerator "+" and "-" to change numbers, bring all numbers to "0". Press Freezer "-" until PE and numbers blink. Unplug refrigerator for 45 seconds, never beyond 1 minute or you'll have to start over.
Look inside refrigerator door and locate the serial sticker. To the right of the serial number is the CODE ####. Plug in your refrigerator.
Press Door Alarm and Freezer "-" at the same time, then release Door Alarm but continue to press Freezer "-". Using the same method as above, enter the four digit CODE number you found on the serial sticker. Press Freezer "-" until PE and numbers blink. You have just reset your panel. Unplug for 45 seconds. Plug in refrigerator and you should now have full use of your door panel.
This unit has a built in safety timer mechanism. If it dispenses water for two minutes, it assumes it is flooding your house and shuts the panel down. If you are filling a pitcher of water, just stop dispensing halfway through to reset the safety timer.
